All is funky, bright and contemporary at smiling Hervé and Anne’s apartments converted from a 19th-century longère and perfectly positioned on the shores of the estuary. Plenty of fun touches: a teacup light, amusing caricatures on the walls – just mind your head in the mezzanine double. Delicious breakfast served in a cheery dining room overlooking the Rance is a leisurely affair before everyone tumbles out for a swim in the pool. After crepes with Anne’s famous caramel beurre sale, St Malo yogurts, Breton cakes and butter, you might need a bit of exercise! A wonderful, friendly spot to stay en famille.
